Open-ended, student-centred tasks are increasingly a feature of higher education, particularly in flexible online courses. These tasks require students to interpret open-ended requirements and independently regulate their own learning, either partly or solely online. There is much we are yet to understand about how to design and support these tasks effectively to achieve the best outcomes for students. In this chapter we consider the role of self-regulated learning in open-ended online assignment tasks, conceptualised using self-regulated learning and considering the role of evaluative judgement, and illustrated using a brief case study.
